Product Description

JARVIS COCKER Jarvis (2006 UK 13-track CD album - Jarvis is BACK with his 1st solo album following on from his controversial online only single Running The World which has since taken on a cult anthemic status all of its own includes the single Dont Let Him Waste Your Time picture sleeve)

Amazon.co.uk

A lot of pop stars find it difficult to grow old gracefully, but not so Jarvis Cocker. His solo debut, Jarvis, find the former Pulp lyricist and frontman picking up more or where he left off with his former band, and the result is an album that befits a man in his thirties. In fairness, Cocker was always and astute and mature songwriter, with a keen gift for observation, so the transition to "serious" artist was never in any doubt. But still, it's a huge relief that Jarvis is so very, very good. He sings of love and loss, with perspective, knowledge, experience and, best of all, consummate ability. So "Don't Let Him Waste Your Time" is a pointed anti-marriage anthem, while "Fat Children" is a gloves-off attack on yob culture. Cocker is a great writer, and possesses the ability to make the listener laugh and cry, sometimes at the same time (check out the hidden track at the end for the finest example of this fact). Best of all, the quality of the lyrics is often matched by the strength of the tunes: "Black Magic" samples "Crimson & Clover" to fine effect, and "Heavy Weather" is downright anthemic. This is a superb album, one that should still be listened to for generations to come. --Ted Kord

A terrific album - the little melodic hooks coupled to those lyrics. The only artist who can make me laugh and cry, sometimes in the same verse, while making a deft political and social commentary on Britain in 2006. More power to your elbow Jarvis.

This album takes you right back to classic 'This Is Hardcore' Pulp. Think 'Dishes' and 'TV Movie', from that album and you are about where we are here.

I think it will please most Pulp fans who liked that album.

I'm not sure why 'Running The World' is on after 30 minutes of silence at the end, a bit of a pain really especially as it is a stand out track.

Apart from that 'Heavy Weather', 'Don't Let Him Waste Your Time','Baby's Coming Back To Me' all stand out to me but this is a no filler album and I could have named others. Just don't expect big synths, those days ended in Pulp years ago.

I loove this album!! It gets into one's ears from the very first time you listen to it and the songs will not want to leave you. While it's still distinctively Jarvis, with his observant and cynical lyrics, I was amazed by the variety of the songs - no two sound in the least alike.

I was very worried this cd might be a great disappointment but it's fast turning into my favourite album of 2006. Buy it now!

This album is a 'grower' in the best sense of the word. Rather than trying to hammer you over the head with it's greatness, this album un-expectedly creeps up on you until you are well and truly seduced by it's alternate honesty, sweetness and sharp wit.

It was recorded quickly, despite the LONG gestation time of Jarvis' ideas, and it's all the better for it, for Jarvis sounds fresher than he has for years. He's as up to the moment as ever with his lyrical concerns, but he also adds some less familiar,irony-free cooncerns about growing up and what drives us to be creative ('Black Magic').

Also, in these new wave of new wave times, it is a delight to find someone who is not afraid to write melodies.

Be patient and you will come to appreciate just how grest a songwriter Mr Cocker remains.

I've only had chance to listen to this album once, but thought I'd note down some first impressions. Unsurprisingly, this isn't a return to Different Class-style Pulp - but it's better for it. The general feel of the album is perhaps closest to This is Hardcore, both albums sharing a darkly humorous air. The music is strong, but as is usual with Jarvis's projects, the real strength is in the lyrics which are as sharp as ever. It's difficult to choose a favourite track just yet, but Fat Children really ought to be released as a single.

Jarvis Cocker's 2006 self-titled debut album contains a typical mix of sometimes light, but mostly brilliantly acerbic, lyrics, contained within a set of predominantly mid-tempo/ballad songs, with the odd rocker thrown in for good measure. Whilst not quite reaching the creative heights of Pulp's best albums (His n' Hers, Different Class and This Is Hardcore), Jarvis represents a sterling solo debut from this treasured bastion of the British music scene.

The album starts very strongly with the beautiful piano interlude of The Loss Adjuster (which is reprised later on the album), and then two highlight songs, the single Don't Let Him Waste Your Time, which has a brilliant lyric (written from a female perspective) warning would-be romantics against serial time-wasters, followed by Black Magic, a searing attack on religious believers. Stylistically, both of these songs are very close to the Pulp sound. Other standout songs for me include Disney Time, a tale of child censorship and containing the great opening lyric, 'How come they're called "adult movies" when the only thing they show is people making babies filmed up close?', and Big Julie, an extended lyrical soap opera with Jarvis doing his semi-spoken Shelagh Delaney impression. Lyrically (more than musically), other highpoints are Fat Children, a scathing anti-Chav (and obesity) rant, and From Auschswitz to Ipswich, where Cocker laments the general decline in western society and speculates that evil can originate from anywhere (the song title turning out to be particularly apt, since the Ipswich prostitute murders came to light just after the album's release). The album is also notorious for its hidden track, another Cocker rant entitled `Cu!!

Jarvis shows that less can be more. More sparse than Pulp's rather full sound. Composed and mature in it's outlook with rather minimal orchestration. Perhaps Jarvis is more at ease with himself nowadays now he is no longer so much in the public eye.

The ballads stand out for me. In particular, 'I will kill again' and 'Baby's coming back to me'. These are beautiful songs that could bring you close to tears.

I'm so pleased that Jarvis has come back with something very different to Pulp and has carved out a niche all of his own. Please don't put you pen down for so long next time.

After pulp were placed on hiatus in 2002, you worried you'd never hear from jarvis again. Gladly he's back and still is a different class from all the 'so called artists'. The album isn't the same as a pulp album, gone are the synths replaced by piano and strings. the lyrics are still there, acerbic in places (fat children), a rant on the hoodie yob culture and the infamous running the world (hidden track) Jarvis's romanticism shines through on songs like the amazing 'Big Julie' and 'don't let him waste your time'. The album gets better with each listen. One of britain's best and most original songwriters is back and the soundscape is all the better for it. Welcome back Jarvis. Go out and buy it, you won't be disappointed.
